For those looking for some skiing in Nippon, Niseko is the spot for you. With some of the lightest and driest powder, the Niseko Hirafu resort has it all. The Chalet Ivy is Niseko's premiere hotel, boasting gorgeous views of Mount Yotei, and a restaurant and onsen on the premises. There are also 10 restaurants and cafes within walking distance to choose from for lunch and dinner. The slopes accommodate skiers young and old, and anyone interested would have a great time here at Niseko.
Want to spend the holidays on the slopes, away from the rain and humidity of Hawaii's winter? Come to Big White. Wake up to snowfall and hot cocoa by the fire, and wear all those ugly sweaters you've been collecting. The kids will have a blast too, with fireworks shows and parades galore. And if they've have been good all year, a certain jolly man in red just might take a brief break from his toy-making. With a full schedule of all holiday events, and more information on the mountain, go to bigwhite.com

Living in the islands can be paradise, but it can get a little stale. That's why we specialize in ski trips, a way to cool off from the heat of the tropical sun. We know a lot of you know of ski resorts on the mainland, but for those of you who want a something more exotic, these packages are for you. Canada and Japan's ski resorts are exquisite, and the snow cannot be topped. These dates are just for the guided tours, and if you'd like to visit at any time that's not listed, just contact us and we can arrange a trip that fits your busy schedule.
